Menopause sucks. This week, I had a couple of days when I had to workout in the afternoon. Or I had to skip a day altogether. The anxiety and depression whack me upside the head without those morning endorphins. I’m miserable when I don’t work out and a little bit miserable even when I do. I’m cranky. And I need more sleep. More sleep for muscle recovery, but also because the hotflashes keep me from sleeping well. My job can be a little stressful at times and it certainly takes a ton of time to do, so getting the workouts done and getting enough sleep are a challenge. I’m exhausted at the end of every day. And if there are too many things going on in one day, I feel overwhelmed and can’t focus. As I said, menopause sucks. I’m seeing my doc this week. I’m not sure there is much more that I can do on my own. I’ve got the exercise and diet totally in check. Maybe I need to be eating something else? More soy, maybe? Something for sleeping? Something for anxiety? I hate taking meds.
